Aeropus II of Macedon (Greek: Ἀέροπος Βʹ ὁ Μακεδών), king of Macedon, guardian of Orestes, the son of Archelaus, reigned nearly six years from 399 BC.

The first four years of this time he reigned jointly with Orestes, and the remainder alone. He was succeeded by his son Pausanias. (Diod. xiv. 37, 84; Dexippus, ap. Syncell. p. 263, a.; comp. Polyaen. ii. 1. § 17.)
